I use this to lock my racing bicycle up outside work and it is long enough to get round a lamp post and the bike frame.
Tough and durable and good value for money (although I did see it cheaper at Trago Mills in Cornwall!)
One word of warning, the chain is very heavey so not really suitable for transporting to use with a daily commute.

This is a good lock for the money. I use this to lock my racing bicycle up outside work and it is long enough to get round a lamp post and the bike frame. The key operation in the lock is precise and the chain is nice and chunky. The lock its self looks nice and secure and the material sleeve over the chain has stopped it scratching the bike frame.

edit. Spotted a thief trying to steal my bike last week. He had a large set of bolt croppers and was about to attack the chain when I interrupted him. Have decided that this lock and chain is not enough of a deterant! Going to upgrade to a 16mm chain and lock like the Almax or Untouchable. The Oxford is a good chain but it looks like it is not enough to put off a determined thief with a big set of bolt croppers.

Thieves have targeted my bike twice in the past two months. My bike is secured outside the house onto a very thick wall anchor using a Magnum D-Lock. The first time the thieves buckled both wheels trying to wrench the bike off the wall. That was never going to work. The wall anchor is drilled into the wall on 10cm bolts and is as thick as my thumb. So I had to buy two new wheels. £100 down.

The next time they were clearly aware of the fact they'd never get the whole bike so just stole the front wheel. Another £50 down.

I decided it was time to get some extra deterrent.

The Oxford Lock and Chain seemed the perfect option. I thought 150cm would be long enough to go through both wheels and through the wall anchor but it's not. I should probably have bought a longer chain.

I've got around it by attaching the chain to the wall anchor using the padlock, and putting the d-lock through the back wheel. I hook the end of the chain over the d-lock so that everything is secure. I guess they could still steal my saddle, but that's it.

Since getting the new lock I've not had any problems. I have a small alarm on the bike and since it's never gone off since I got then new lock I think the thieves are now suitably deterred.

The Good:
Heavyweight and Secure looking
Has a sleeve over the chain to protect your bike
Has a Sold Secure rating for insurance purposes

The Bad:
Not quite long enough to secure both wheels and go through an anchor by itself. If you need that get the 2meter version.

Overall:
Well worth it. If it saves you having to buy just one new wheel the cost is more than covered.

I bought this item under the premise that it was the item in the image.
It is not the item in the image. Just like the other review had noted the chain provided is not the one that is sent out. The one that has been sent is the Oxford HD Chain.
Not the Hardcore XL chain as is in the picture!! Notice they also use the word hardcore in the title!

The HD chian is a Sold Secure Silver chain.
The Hardcore XL is a Sold Secure Gold chain.

I complained about the wrong product being sent out and in the end they gave me a refund and said I could keep the chain. Thats great you would think.

They had said that somehow the image had been changed by another seller, and that was the reason for the wrong image. But a month later the image is still the same. And I'm sure that they will catch more people out.

How hard is it to be honest?

The Oxford HD chain and padlock are a robust combination of security devices allowing both disc brake and wheel to be simultaneously secured if required. Alternatively the padlock may be used alone on the disc. Of moderate weight and dimensions the chain and lock can easily be found a convenient corner in under-seat storage.

This is great value and was delivered really quickly.
it is sturdy but not to big and bulky like my last one.(being a mid 40s lady my last one was quite a bit heavier!!)
the only problem i have had with it so far is now and again i have trouble locking it as if the pins inside have moved slightly and have to twist the key several times before it locks it.
I'm happy however to leave my scooter at the station every morning and not worried about it not being there when i get back in the evening. I feel this is a very secure lock, a great buy.
:O)

I got this Chain and Padlock 1.5m, and after inspecting it, i found that the last chain link was so poorly welded, that it only connected on a very small point.

I am very surprised to see such a big flaw on a easily visible part of the chain, go unnoticed by quality checks and by the seller...

The padlock is also not so convincing, there is a lot of plastic, and the metal inside looked cheap.

I'm sending it back, and keeping my Kryptonite New York 3000 U lock, wich is VERY good!

As the title of this review states the chain is heavy duty but I have now had two Oxford locks in the last year for my bike and in both cases the locking mechanism plays up. The parts inside the lock seem to separate and become out of sync and eventually its very hard/fiddly or impossible to unlock. I doubt I'll buy another Oxford locking product.
